JSF has a media-independent View Definition Language. So using raw HTML in a JSF View Template is not something I recommend.
I definitely don't recommend coding logic constructs such as loops on a View definition. For tabular displays, JSF has special tags that treat collections of objects as the 2-dimensional objects that they really are, not as programming constructs.
You need to sit down with a good introductory JSF book.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
